    Heehee! That's wonderful. I was wondering whether the oracle could look forward in time to read Roy's text.
    Hooray for Roy making contact!

    It looks like it's indeed hard to really kill the Oracle...

    But wouldn't it be easier to prevent the deaths ?

    They're probably lizardmen or trogs.

    The oracle rules. Seriously. Got to love that yellow little bugger.

    Waiting with pleasure what he'll be telling Roy soon.

    Argh. I knew it! Right from the point Roy made all those 'Yo Momma' jokes, I knew the Oracle was the type to ignore it just to cheese Roy off, since the oracle just likes being spiteful, and what better way to spite a ghost than to affirm his suspicions that you can't hear him?

    If only I had posted my thoughts so I could quote it here and flaunt my foresight.

    Edit:

    They're called Bangaa, not Dragonborn.

    Hurray! The oracle is back! And he's been screwing with Roy the whole time. That only makes me love him more. If he was a girl oracle...and more mammalian I'd want to have little orange babies with her!

    No, it's really easy to kill the Oracle. He just won't STAY dead unless you do something to stop resurrections...

    But wouldn't it be easier to prevent the deaths ?
    He's an Oracle; he knows his deaths have been preordained. He can't prevent them.

    Heh... That druid is screwed...

    I wonder whether the oracle's visions work like "i've had a vision - something's gonna happen..." or "let's see what'll happen then". Because if they work the former way, he'd have to have a *very* good memory.

    Maybe once an event has been divined, it cannot be prevented, it will happen, no matter what precautions you take. So all you can do is to
    a) put them in a context when their real meaning is distroted to your needs; or
    b) make preparations to remedy unwanted consequences.

    OK, so my theory from the last strip about Roy telling Belkar about him almost being kicked out of the team is moot.

    Which is kind of a let down. I had held out hope the memory charm wasn't going to be a complete cop-out type thing where it turns out the visit to the Oracle has no real character development. But no one remembers or knows what happened (other than the audience), so what does it accomplish?

    There is some slight possibility that the effects of the memory charm can be undone, but it probably take some serious Deus Ex Machina for that.

    But also now the shock of the Oracle dying is gone as well. He can still be used as source of information, it's not a major loss or event the way Shojo or even Miko dying were. And I suppose if the team ever does revisit him Belkar will try to kill him again, but being held back by the others this time.

    I am somewhat disappointed by what this strip means compared to what could have been, but it's not like I'm going to stop reading anytime soon. Hopefully it's leading somewhere.

    Looks like Roy is going to have a LOT of strangling to do if/when he gets resurrected. :-)

    If his prophecies could be invalidated so easily, he wouldn't be much of an Oracle.

    ...

    I gotta admit, I giggled like a fool at the whole druid vs animal companion bit - once I picked my jaw up off the floor.

    Either A) Fate is immutable, in which case the Oracle has no way to prevent the deaths, or B) Fate is a fiction, in which case the Oracle doesn't want to do anything that would reveal that fiction, thereby putting himself out of a job.
